Make sure to reserve the shuttle
Just recently, we celebrated our friend's bachelorette party and stayed at the Amerisuites. The parking was convenient and located right next door to the hotel on the fourth floor of the parking deck. The room was decent and appeared clean with a refrigerator, microwave, 2 double beds and a pullout bed. The only problem that we encountered was related to reserving the shuttle. We were told that we did not have to reserve the shuttle and that we just needed to be at the front desk at the first of the hour between 7 and 9 pm. We were actually at the desk at about 7:55 pm and some of the front desk personnel were unfriendly to my friends and not very helpful. We ended up sitting inside the bus and soon discovered that there were 2 other parties that had reserved the shuttle before us. Yet we were never informed that we needed to reserve the shuttle because I specifically asked this question on the phone before our arrival to the hotel. I would recommend that the hotel hire more personable staff that are well informed of the services of the hotel. The main positive of the trip was that our shuttle driver was very friendly and apologetic of our negative experiences.
The hotel was very average. It was what it was but dont expect anything special. I did not have a trash can in my room. The the biggest bother was the noise the cleaning staff made. In the morning they were VERY loud with their voices and in and out doors. I did enjoy like the fact that the wireless internet was free. If you get a good rate on this hotel then I would suggest it. There is a great restaurant next door.
Great for the price
We paid 78 Bucks a night and you can't beat that price for that location. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy, but clean and quiet. We got stuck there during the ice storm in January 2005. The location was very convenient, since the Rock Bottom Brewery is right next door and we at least could eat and drink and make the best of the situation.
One Warning though: The breakfast ist absolutely terrible, eggless eggs and some rubbery type of sausage patties.
Good value for location
My rating is based on comparable value. There are certainly nicer hotels in Buckhead, but I paid $100, versus twice that much for most other hotels in the area. The room was adequate and clean, but not as nice as a Courtyard or Embassy Suites. The couch was not in good shape and a picture on the wall was crooked and quite percariously attached to the wall. I would stay there again as long as the rate is substantially lower than others in the area.
Ok Hotel. Great Location but Very Noisy.
Stayed at this hotel for two nights in August.
The location is great with a MARTA station close enough to walk to and two coffee establishments (Joe Muggs & Caribou Coffee) across the street.
Buckhead bars are a decent walk away or you can pay the $7 cab fare. The hotel also provides a shuttle to the Lenox Mall.
Rooms are also very spacious.
However, the hotel was very noisy. Woke up 3 times during sleeping b/c the Hotel Cleaning Staff kept slamming doors and overall just being very loud. I expected this from previous Amerisuites stays, and was primarily looking for just something with a good location and decent rate - since most of our time would not be in the hotel room.
If you're a deep sleeper - would highly recommend. If you plan on spending significant time at the hotel, would suggest looking at other hotels in the Buckhead area (and there are plenty).
I figured that being that the hotel had such a great location and that it was an Amerisuites that our stay would be pleasant. Unfortunately we had a bad experience. We arrived at the hotel very late in the evening, checked in and then went to one of the many restaurants that are located nearby. (Great location). When we arrived back to the room it was late so we got ready for bed. It was then that we noticed some personal and several strands of hair from someone with long dark curly hair (this could not have been anyone in our party). I didn't want to make a big deal about it so we let it go. I had called several other requests that weren't answered by the evening attendant. She did provide us with discount coupons for several of the local restaurants, however.
Most of the issues were resolved by morning, however the personal hairs still remained. I called this to the front desk and nothing was done about it.
I am sure, however had the dirty bathroom not been a problem we might have enjoyed our stay... good location, friendly day employees. Lots of tour busses so don't stay if you want peace and quiet in the lobby.
Couldn't figure out why they only had waffles on one day we were there, though... they were the best part of the breakfast buffet.
Stayed at this hotel at the beginning of our trip...our room was clean and very spacious with a sitting area and kitchen area complete with microwave. We had a safe deposit box in the room which saved going down to the desk. Although there was no bar there is one right next door which served great food and plenty of drinks... The hotel had a good complimantary breakfast which started the day off well. I would stay at this hotel again
Nice Hotel. Our regular non-smoking king room was quiet, clean, and well layed out(ie, the bath sink is out side the toilet area).
Large Breakfast included fruit, scrambled eggs and sausages.
The Hotel staff was curt but helpful.
They offer free shuttle service within 3 miles of the hotel which we used several times since we had no car.
Take the MARTA to Buckhead and call the hotel for shuttle.
There are better hotels in Atlanta
I was really dissapointed in this hotel. Their front desk staff was a bit on the arrogant side. The free breakfast they offer is an area too small for the number of people trying to utilize the freebie. We also had mold in the room from where the airconditioner had leaked for quite some time. I kept noticing the mold smell but could never figure it out until we were about to check out. There are so many hotels in the buckhead area, look for another one before choosing this one.

Today is the last day of the Conference and our last full day in Atlanta. Drive to Orlando tomorrow to join the cruise on the 11th. I left the hotel early and caught the shuttle bus to the Martin Luther King Jnr Historic site. It included the Ebeneza Baptist Church that his father and he were ministers. The church was the centre of his civil rights work. His wife, after his assassination, took over and continued his amazing work for peace ...
... You could drink as much as you wanted. We received a small glass bottle of Coke to take with us......Ged saves old glass Coke bottles so I will take it home for him. Finally arrived back at the hotel and had a shower and a nanny nap. Tanya rang and they were going to dinner....did I want to go too? Caught the shuttle to Max Larger, a local restaurant. Enjoyed a nice pork chop dinner! Great company and then home to ...
... our HI room. It's spring break here (or Easter as we know it)and the city is full of excitable college girl groups, squealing and whooping. They are often dressed in their PE kit; basketball may be involved. Oddly, they are followed around by their moms, who can't quite keep up the pace.

Drove 70 miles in a hour.
Atlanta is a huge, spread out city with a sprawling high rise downtown centre. We really struggled with finding anything to like about this town.
It certainly has one of the worst taxi systems I have ever experienced anywhere in the world, with a minimum charge of $12 regardless of distance traveled. This policy is not only a rip off but hugely dangerous.
We refused to pay the minimum ...
... to see the Atlanta History Museum/Center. The museum had a great exhibit on the 1996 Olympics (held in ATL), and a pretty good exhibit on the Civil War and Reconstruction. The exhibit exploring American and European interactions with Native Americans was high up on the list of most superficial exhibits I've ever seen. Almost none of the wall panels were accompanied by real artifacts (most were accompanied by replicas). There were a few ...
